Overview

A short but beautiful ski line offering views of some of the best mountains in the state.

Description

This couloir starts maybe 30 yards south from the summit of Conundrum Peak. It then drops southeast into the basin between Castle and Conundrum. There's a slight choke about one third of the way down, but it's still ~40 feet wide. Plenty of room to make careful turns since the couloir gets slightly steeper at the same point.
